I like it but glad you made it not me.

Can’t drink enough coffee to keep me going through that much scrollsaw work. )

Any hidden compartments?

What an achievement William. It amazing to look at the scale of fretwork you have done. How many blades did you burn up and break. I still say it looks like a castle with a drawbridge. T-0 and liftoff;)

Thank you all for your compliments.
Let me see if I can answer a few questions.
I lost count on how many blades I went through at about five dozen. I also have no idea how many hours I have in it. SuperD says three weeks and I’ll take his word for it.
As for hidden compartment, no, not exactly. If you’ll notice the little cubby holes behind the double doors on the side though. They are right around the corner from matching double false door panels. Noone so far has noticed that the ones on the side are actual doors unless I show them. So I guess they are hidden in plain sight.
No it was not a joyous day of completion. Anytime I complete a large project, I feel sadness. My projects consume me and become part of me. Upon completion, I feel as if I have lost a friend. I usually immediately start thinking about what I want to build next, along with how I can make the next version of the just finished project better.
Once again, thank you all so much. I am blushing. I am happy others enjoy my passion.

A very good looking piece! That is an impressive amount of fretwork. How long did that take you to finish? And what happens to it now. Would be really nice if it went somewhere that we could come and see it in person.
